Science Advisory Panels: Results of a Survey of Panel Participants

SM Hays, RA Becker, DM Nelson and CR Kirman

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: May 10, 2021

Science panel deliberations serve as an important step in policy and regulatory decision making, ideally providing independent validation that the decisions under consideration are based on sound scientific evidence and interpretation. To be useful, the findings from a science panel should be trusted by all parties involved (e.g., regulatory decision makers, participating scientists, general public, regulated industries). A survey was conducted of scientists who had participated in science advis...

A Low Vitamin A Diet Decreases Skeletal Muscle Performance

Alexis Ruiz, Christoph Bachmann, Martina Franchini, Sofia Benucci, Francesco Zorzato and Susan Treves

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: May 19, 2021

Vitamin A (retinol) is an essential lipid-soluble vitamin important for a number of biological functions. In mice, reduction of its dietary content by substituting standard rodent chow with a chow containing 5 times less vitamin A and feeding mice for two generations with this modified diet, results in the depletion of all-trans- retinoic acid. In the present study we investigated if the low vitamin A diet affects skeletal muscle function. Mice fed the low vitamin A diet ran significantly less a...

As community transmission of COVID 19 peaks in our environment, more children are presenting with moderate to severe disease, as against the earlier notion of asymptomatic to mild disease severity in children. Mortality from COVID-19 infection in children with no apparent comorbidity is still rare. Our aim is to describe a fatal case of COVID-19 in a Nigerian girl with no background medical conditions. The 8-year-old girl presented with fever, cough and difficulty with breathing. She was febrile...

Risk Factors for Surgical Site Infection Following Ventriculoperitoneal Shunting

Fabiana Guerra Pimenta, Roberta Maia de Castro Romanelli, Paulo Henrique Orlandi Mourão, Maria Letícia Barbosa Braga, Soraya Rodrigues de Almeida Sanches, Alexandre Varella Giannetti and Wanessa Trindade Clemente

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: May 17, 2021

Ventriculoperitoneal shunting (VPS) is a neurosurgical procedure used to treat hydrocephalus. However, after this procedure, the surgical site infection rates and associated risk factors remain unclear. Most studies do not apply clear criteria for the definition of surgical site infection (SSI), hindering its clinical applicability. We conducted a retrospective, case-control study to evaluate the risk factors for SSI after VPS. The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) criteria were used to ...

Midodrine for Prevention of Intradialytic Hypotension in High Risk Patients at a Tertiary Referral Hospital: A Retrospective Study

Saja AL-Habardi, Maryam AL-Dhaefi, Mohammed AL-Essa, Maha AL-Ammari, Yousef AL-Rajhi and Rami Bustami

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: May 27, 2021

Intradialysis hypotension (IDH) is the most common complication during hemodialysis procedure. Midodrine, an oral α-1 adrenergic agonist, is commonly used to prevent IDH. However, limited data is available to demonstrate midodrine effectiveness in prevention of IDH in high-risk hemodialysis patients. To evaluate the effectiveness of using midodrine in patients receiving hemodialysis concerning the incidence of IDH. Also, we aimed to explore the appropriate dose for midodrine use to prevent IDH....

Hospital Induced Deconditioning

Jiya Liz Peter, MBBS

Article Type: Patient Care | First Published: May 24, 2021

Medicine is considered to be one of the most noble as well as premium profession. We love saving lives each day and cherish a deep sense of accomplishment in what we do. However, the experience of being in a hospital is quite different from a patient’s perspective, and I hope to talk more about the impact here. Deconditioning is a lesser known subject that factors the psychological as well as physiological impact on an individual. While deconditioning could occur anywhere, it is quite commonly...

Epitope Spreading and the Efficacy of Immune Checkpoint Inhibition in Cancer

W. Robert Liu, PhD and David E. Fisher, MD, PhD

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: May 28, 2021

Therapeutic antibodies that target immune checkpoints have revolutionized cancer therapy. While these checkpoints restrain T cell activation in response to antigen engagement, checkpoint inhibitors de-repress such tumor-associated T cells, and have generated major clinical responses in multiple tumor types. Nonetheless, the vast majority of cancers remain resistant to this therapeutic approach as currently deployed, either through intrinsic or acquired resistance mechanisms. One key question inv...

Contact Mechanics Modeling of the Semmes-Weinstein Monofilament on the Plantar Surface of the Foot

Vitale Kyle Castellano, Robert L Jackson, and Michael E Zabala

Article Type: Prospective, Descriptive Study | First Published: May 27, 2021

Neuropathy is a disease which results in the loss of sensation in the extremities. One method for assessing the degree of neuropathy is with a monofilament evaluator which buckles at a prescribed force depending on the filament diameter. However, as this assessment is conducted by the clinician’s hand, the true force delivered is unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to model the effects of both insertion depth and monofilament diameter on the contact force and normal stress produc...
